This tutorial demonstrates how to work with neuronal data using MATLAB, including actional potentials and spike counts, orientation tuing curves in visual cortex, and spatial maps of firing rates.
In this lesson, users will learn how to appropriately sort and bin neural spikes, allowing for the generation of a common and powerful visualization tool in neuroscience, the histogram.
This lecture discusses the the importance and need for data sharing in clinical neuroscience.
This lecture gives insights into the Medical Informatics Platform's current and future data privacy model.
This lecture gives an overview on the European Health Dataspace.
This is an introductory lecture on whole-brain modelling, delving into the various spatial scales of neuroscience, neural population models, and whole-brain modelling. Additionally, the clinical applications of building and testing such models are characterized.
This is a tutorial on designing a Bayesian inference model to map belief trajectories, with emphasis on gaining familiarity with Hierarchical Gaussian Filters (HGFs).
This lesson corresponds to slides 65-90 of the PDF below.
This lecture highlights the importance of correct annotation and assignment of location, and updated atlas resources to avoid errors in navigation and data interpretation.
We are at the exciting technological stage where it has become feasible to represent the anatomy of an entire human brain at the cellular level. This lecture discusses how neuroanatomy in the 21st Century has become an effort towards the virtualization and standardization of brain tissue.
This lecture covers essential features of digital brain models for neuroinformatics, particularly NeuroMaps.
This presentation covers the neuroinformatics tools and techniques used and their relationship to neuroanatomy for the Allen Institute's atlases of the mouse, developing mouse, and mouse connectional atlas.
This lesson provides an overview of Jupyter notebooks, Jupyter lab, and Binder, as well as their applications within the field of neuroimaging, particularly when it comes to the writing phase of your research.
Panel discussion by leading scientists, engineers and philosophers discuss what brain-computer interfaces are and the unique scientific and ethical challenges they pose. hosted by Lynne Malcolm from ABC Radio National's All in the Mind program and features:
Panel of experts discuss the virtues and risks of our digital health data being captured and used by others in the age of Facebook, metadata retention laws, Cambridge Analytica and a rapidly evolving neuroscience. The discussion was moderated by Jon Faine, ABC Radio presenter. The panelists were:
This book was written with the goal of introducing researchers and students in a variety of research fields to the intersection of data science and neuroimaging. This book reflects our own experience of doing research at the intersection of data science and neuroimaging and it is based on our experience working with students and collaborators who come from a variety of backgrounds and have a variety of reasons for wanting to use data science approaches in their work. The tools and ideas that we chose to write about are all tools and ideas that we have used in some way in our own research. Many of them are tools that we use on a daily basis in our work. This was important to us for a few reasons: the first is that we want to teach people things that we ourselves find useful. Second, it allowed us to write the book with a focus on solving specific analysis tasks. For example, in many of the chapters you will see that we walk you through ideas while implementing them in code, and with data. We believe that this is a good way to learn about data analysis, because it provides a connecting thread from scientific questions through the data and its representation to implementing specific answers to these questions. Finally, we find these ideas compelling and fruitful. That’s why we were drawn to them in the first place. We hope that our enthusiasm about the ideas and tools described in this book will be infectious enough to convince the readers of their value.
